Okay, I had thought for years that I was a bit on the bipolar side. I could always spend money without thinking do most anything without thinking actually. Thankfully someone always bailed me out of every mess I got into. I am married now and have been for 17 years with 3 children, ages 16,14 and 12. I am a nurse but haven't worked in a few years. To hurry to the point almost 3 years ago I had gastric bypass surgery and surpassed any goal I ever thought I could. Having that addictive personality and not being able to stuff my feelings with food ( suffered from depression for years ) I began to take pain killers. I spent a fortune on them. I have bankrupted my family. I attemped suicided and did a pretty good job of it but only landed me in the hospital diagnosed bipolar and medicated. Depakote, I hate it, I have gained 40lbs. My DR won't change it and I have suffered from migraines since I was a teenager and now I am allowed no pain medication other than tylenol. I can't even have a drink. Does that sound normal not changing my meds and not allowing other meds to be taken?

I've been pretty stable the last few months. I haven't had a depressive episode in months and no hypomania. My meds really seem to be working. I was substitute teacher last school year but I recently found a part time job as a paraprofessional and I am happy with a set schedule. I'm doing so well and I hope it continues. My kids see a huge change in me and are proud of how well I am doing.
